I made her promise to keep emailing me. Then we hugged it out. Rachel has honestly become a friend through this process and I can’t wait for her and Jamie to come back to Pittsburgh to visit. I will miss her weekly (sometimes daily) emails, but hopefully that means that we will move past the emails to drinks when they are back in town to visit. Who am I kidding? That is most definitely what it means.
I loved everything about their wedding. It was sweet and fun. There were a ton of DIY touches that really made the wedding a reflection of the two of them. Not only that, but Jamie’s dad made homemade wine to give as favors and a friend of Jamie’s brewed homemade beer to be served at the wedding. I can testify that both were amazing! Not that I drank it at the wedding. They actually gave me some to take home and try. I promise I wasn’t drinking on the job… only after!
Rachel and all her bridesmaids stayed at the Mansion the night before the wedding. This made the morning of her wedding so relaxing and calm because they did not have to run all over the city to get their hair and makeup done prior to the wedding.
A girl after my own heart… Love these shoes!
One of the reasons I love Rachel so much is that she is always so full of energy and so fun. She had this same outlook the entire weekend!
All loaded up and ready to head off to Heinz Chapel where they held their ceremony.
They had a very natural decor and utilized succulents in the centerpieces and as accent pieces. I just love this and think it is a great alternative to the typical completely floral arrangements.
I loved this unique version of the guest book! Each guest picked a word, circled it and signed their name with a little message. What a great way to get advice from all the friends and family that they love so much!
Burnt Almond Torte from Prantl’s? Yes please!
You can just tell how much they love each other. This is what it is all about. This is what makes my job so worth it. This is why I always feel so honored to be a part of this day.
